Los Blancos have already announced three signings  inthis window, namely right-back Alvaro Odriozola, goalkeeper Andriy Lunin and Brazilian wonderkid Rodrygo, who will only join the squad in January after turning 18 years old.

In addition, they agreed a deal for Brazilian youngster Vinicius Junior, who has often been dubbed "the next Neymar", in 2017 already, and the winger was finally unveiled at the Santiago Bernabeu on Friday, after turning 18 on 12 July and passing a medical.

"Vinicius is one of the players who will mark the future of football, but is already a reality, who was wanted by Europe's biggest club," club president Florentino Perez said, as quoted by ESPN journalist Dermot Corrigan.

The player himself added: "I'll sacrifice a lot to show I deserve this opportunity. But sacrifice is not something new for me, I come from a very simple family, and am very proud of the values they have taught me. 

"Now I am at the peak, at Real Madrid, at just 18 years old. I will show I am ready to play, and show everything possible as quickly as I can. I know the adaptation will not be easy but I am ready to do whatever necessary."
